I am having problems getting DVD projects to burn successfully. The DVD's partially burn, but then finish with errors. In addition, I have opened older files that previously burned successfully and they burn with errors. I have done about 70 DVD projects over the past 15 months with Roxio, but have had to re-burn about 20% of them due to burning errors until these latest problems affect every one. I use read-only discs, using Memorex, SONY and imation.
I have Easy Media Creator 7.5 which worked just fine before Windows upgraded to IE7. So I reverted back to IE6, but still had problems, so I updated the firmware for my Memorex DVD writer and added a patch from Roxio. Then it worked just fine for another month. Now I get errors when burning a DVD project. I copied the error message to Roxio and they said there was a new patch. I downloaded that patch and tried the DVD again. Same problem - partial burning, but no success.
Tonight I downloaded ULead trial version, made a DVD and got "no burn to DVD". Then after reading a number of posts here, decided to try and download NERO 7 Ultra trial version. I got error messages from their web-sites saying the pages were unavailable, so that does not inspire much confidence for their products. So rather than beat my head against the keyboard any more, I am asking for help.
Where do I look in my computer to try and resolve the burning error?
What is a good, mid-level, moderately priced, STABLE software for building and burning DVD's. I've had it with Roxio as their products have been notoriously unstable for me.
I appreciate any help you can offer.
